Saws played with solenoids played via MIDI, with a QuNeo, using an interface I designed during the residency.
Flexamaton on the left - flexed sheet metal with a slinky
Flexamaton on the right - flexed sheet metal with a infinite bow (like a motorised hurdy-gurdy)
Step motors for the two Flexamata controlled via MIDI, with a Korg Nano, using a interface I designed during the residency.
Metal harp that I designed for Play; (that is actually more like a thumb piano)
A Flex-Helixophone (on the right) flex sheep metal with a slinky
Live electronics, using a old patch of mine that I control with a SoftStep and a QuNexus
